In 1966, Marty Mahrt was shot down while flying a mission over North Vietnam. He was piloting a Republic F-105 Thunderchief fighter/bomber – an aircraft that suffered a 38% loss rate due to the type of missions they were assigned. Wednesday morning (live from Custer), Marty Mahrt tells his story of rescue and survival during an "Old Guys and Their Airplanes Debrief" hosted by John Mollison. The interactive event begins at 11 Central/10 Mountain at SDPB.org/OGTADebrief.
